cautiously optimistic...

It's been awhile, I know....life is crazy.........we are waiting, we are moving and I am really trying to keep it all together!

We are totally in limbo land right now..........we have been matched, things seem very positive....but one never knows....every time I get butterflies in my stomach at the prospect of finally having our dreams come true....I am overwhelmed with emotion when I think of the woman that I have come to know and the decision that she is faced with at this time....my eyes fill with tears and my excitement quickly diminishes and my thoughts are only with her and what she faces at this time!

We continue to be cautiously optimistic........and are trying to keep our faith in check....what we know for sure is.......we want this special baby to have the most perfect life...whether that is with this special woman that we have come to know or with T and I.....we pray for the best, for this child...if you have time can you pray for the same!

thanks

That's wonderful! What you're feeling is totally the name of this adoption game. Keep loving beyond yourself and God will knit the details together.

Thanks for updating us! We miss you :)

It's a total roller coaster and will be until the baby is born and those 21 days are over. Then you can relax. I'm sooo praying for you guys.

Have been praying and will continue praying. One thing I know for CERTAIN is that God knows what is best for this baby.

Big hugs...I know what you mean about the roller coaster...and it's not fun at all.

SO exciting and overwhelming at the same time! This is great news for you and I'm so happy to hear it...but yes, the give and take part of it is hard to consider.

Hugs,

Every day changes us, but we feel the change more some days than others. Praying for clarity for "the woman" you referenced, you, and T. Lots of love!
